Transcendent love and gratitude go hand in hand, they really are inseparable. When we are so aware of the Love of God that we are amazed at His mercy and grace and everything it means to be a child of God then gratitude is our attitude.

Ephesians 2:1 tells us, "And you were dead in your trespasses and sins," that position outside of Christ and the consequences must be clear in our thoughts. To be dead in sin means your are living in your own world as god of that world. Philippians 2:9-11 tell us, "For this reason also, God, highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." You might notice there is no list of names, only a singular name, "Jesus!" This is the one who has brought transcendent love from the Father and He is the One at the very center of heaven. Our gratitude comes from a judgment moment that was covered by the blood of Christ, in ourselves we are destined for a devils hell, in Christ we are assured of eternity with Christ! That is our basis for an attitude of gratitude. Think of all those negative, horrible attitudes we experience on a daily basis, from rude to the arrogant not to mention the endless negativity.

But if we will allow ourselves to be immersed in the transcendent love of God, gratitude can become a part of our lives. In Christ is the Christian's reality, not in the world. As we worship and focus on God's love and being built up in Christ through His Word our attitude can become the Attitude of Gratitude in Christ! Join with us as we seek the Lord and give ourselves to Him to become His people of Gratitude in a negative world!
